The story of how computer games became a global virtual community
I had a chance to visit the Origin Systems building in 1997 when I first moved to Austin, at the time the only THX-certified game studio in the country. Starr Long even gave me a demo of naked Ultima players running around a rather barren virtual landscape.
When we were working on the book, Richard and his team provided us with some pictures from that time. Here’s a picture of one of the Ultima Online server racks.
